Managed system requirements

This topic explains the operating system requirements for installing Dynatrace Managed. For other Dynatrace Managed requirements see Managed hardware requirements and Managed hardware recommendations for cloud deployments.

  • You'll need a dedicated host for Dynatrace Managed installation. This host must not run other services that are CPU or memory intensive, or that open ports used by Dynatrace Managed.

  • You need a 64-bit Linux distribution (see supported Linux distributions below). Note that installation on both physical and virtualized hosts is supported, but installation in containers isn't supported.

  • Dynatrace Server requires a fixed IP assignment.

  • Ensure that you've appropriately configured your firewall settings

  • The libraries that are installed with Dynatrace Managed are locale-aware. For correct display of text and symbols, be sure to set your environment's system locale to an English language option (for example, LANG=en_US.UTF-8).
